    Justice brings peace, but wicked people do not like justice. Hence, the troubles and disturbances everywhere and there shall be no peace for the wicked. Violence like these is evil, but who started the evil and violence that attracts the current violence and disruptions? Answer, the beneficiaries of the Oil money who didn't want those suffering from the exploitation have a share.
